The Velvet-Lined Box

A father left his wife & children to work in a distant land to make money to provide for his family. His family loved him & respected him very much.

After a while, the father sent his family his 1st letter. Because it was a letter from someone so precious to them, they left it unopened, each kissed it then placed it in an expensive box lined with velvet.

Every now & then, they would take out the letter, kiss it, then return it to the velvet-lined box. None of them dared to open the letter. As the father sent more & more letters, they would take each one, kiss it, & place it in the velvet-lined box.

Years passed, & the father returned to his home to find no one but one son. He asked his son: “Where is your mother?”

The son replied: “She got very sick. We had no money to take her to a doctor, & she passed away.”

The father asked: “Didn’t you see the money I sent to you in my 1st letter?”

Vegetable Curry Recipe

Make a vagaar

1/2 onion
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
few cloves
few peppercorns
3 elachi pods
1 & 1/2 teaspoon jeeru
1 tablespoon ground green chillie/garlic masala
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 & 1/2 teaspoon Dhana jeeru
dash of balsamic vinegar
salt to taste
handful of limri leaves.

Cook a bit, add in your mix of vegebles

1 brinjal cut up
handful of green beans
handful of papri
6 -8 baby onions
6-8 baby potatoes
2 med carrots cut up
1/2 green pepper in large slices
1/2 red pepper in large slices
1 cup sliced button mushrooms
half cup yoghurt
grate in about 1/2 tomato to make it saucy.

Don’t mix too much when cooking to avoid veggies breaking. I first add in veggies that take longer to cook & gradually add in the rest. When curry is almost done, sprinkle over 6-8 Rosa tomatoes & steam for about 10 minutes. Also, a variation is to add patha slices & steam with Rosa tomatoes Serve with piping hot roti’s & assorted achaars
